Full description

Reach Benagil’s spectacular sea cave by bodyboard on this guided tour. Known as the cathedral of the sea for its gigantic arches and domed ceiling, you'll be able to examine the fossils in the cave's rocky walls, relax on its golden sand beach and dive below the turquoise waters.

Starting at Benagil beach, which has its origins as a remote fishing village, slip into your flippers and paddle out on your bodyboard. Follow your guide out to sea and along the rugged coastline as you approach the huge arches that mark the entrance to Benagil cave.

Inside the cave, take some time to relax on the beach, look for fossils in the rocks and listen to the roar of the ocean amplified by the cavernous walls. Illuminated by a circular hole in its roof, the cave offers stunning photo opportunities. Paddle back to Benagil beach to finish the tour.

Esta experiência foi maravilhosa! Quando visitar o Algarve é obrigatório, não só pela simpatia e organização do staff, mas também pelas paisagens e por ser uma atividade dinâmica que nos permite explorar este tesouro que é Benagil e a sua majestosa gruta.
